Kid Friendly Flooring
As flooring design continues to progress, it’s now easier than ever to find kid friendly flooring. Parents are no longer confined by a limited number of options, but have a wide range of products to choose from, including carpet and hardwood. The experts at Johnson Floor & Home Carpet One are ready to help you find a beautiful floor that can stand up to the daily wear and tear of an active family.
Kid friendly floors aren’t just durable and stain-resistant, although these are two big factors to consider. They’re also soft, slip-resistant, and hypoallergenic. Additionally, most kid friendly floors are water-resistant or even waterproof. Modern kid friendly floors also come in gorgeous varieties that are both practical and stylish.
Kid friendly floors are available in both hard surface and soft surface selections. You should base your choice on which rooms you’re installing the floor in. For instance, kid friendly carpets are perfect for living rooms and bedrooms, while luxury vinyl is better suited for the bathroom, kitchen, and entryway.
Carpet is soft and warm underfoot and now comes in stain-resistant and waterproof options. It’s perfect for kids because it provides cushioning in case of a fall, and it will also prevent objects from breaking that children drop or knock down. Today’s carpet has ultra-durable fibers that resist matting and tearing, even after years of heavy foot traffic and rough play. Waterproof and wool carpet fibers are also hypoallergenic and help maintain your home’s indoor air quality.
Hardwood floors are easy to clean and durable. Engineered hardwood is made using a cross-layered construction, so it stands up to spills better than solid hardwood. Additionally, today’s hardwood generally has high-performance finishes that are remarkably durable and damage-resistant. Hardwood is naturally hypoallergenic and great for families with allergies.
Luxury Vinyl has transformed over the years and is now one of the most popular flooring options available. It has the thickest wear layer in the industry, making it incredibly resilient. It also comes in water-resistant and waterproof choices. A cushioned core layer adds warmth and padding underfoot, and it’s inherently hypoallergenic. Additionally, luxury vinyl is now made using high-resolution 3D printing that creates an incredibly authentic look and texture that will complement any room in your home.
